Notes for Lula Inez Reynolds:|
Found on the net at La Salle County Marriage Index, http://historicdistrict.com/Genealogy/lasalle/Marriage.htm the marriage of L.H. Mates (should be Mater) and L.I. Reynolds December 12, 1894. Clara Larimer said December 11, 1894.
Once Clara and Mae sent a hungry bum to their mother for food, he must have made a pass at her because the next thing they knew he came running back out with Lula chasing after him shooting in the air.
Lula divorced Lonny and later married William Thomas Smith. She later divorced him and had several more husbands.
Lula Inez won a beauty prize in La Salle, Texas.
One time Lula chased Bill with a pistol.
One time when Clara was twelve or fourteen years old, her mother, Lula was very sick and finally decided to go to the hospital to have an ovary removed. They were living at either San Antonio or Austin, Texas on Duval Street, with Aunt Georgia, who was city detective. Suddenly there was a big explosion at the round house during the morning shift change. The fire box from one of the trains landed between their house and another and there were pieces of entrails and pieces of bodies all over. Some parts were even hanging from telephone wires.
Lula died in a car wreck. It was raining and she made a U turn. The car skidded on the streetcar tracks and she hit a telephone pole and was killed.
When Lula was in the casket waiting to be buried, Suzie Hannon (family friend) Mae Iberia and Clara Inez sat up in the middle of Suzie's bed playing cards.
